Freedom Software is creating Games and Game Art

Like a ray of light
We reach into the heart of darkness
And from our imagination
Entire new realms are born
For you to play in


We have been working on this project for the past few months and we are very proud in what we have accomplished with minimal resources.  We now want to take it to the next level, but for that we need the help of the community. To accomplish this we have decided to use Patreon as it has proven itself to be a successful tool.  Our goals are not very high and hope that you Patrons will assist us in achieving them.  There are four tiers you can participate in:

Non-binder: $1
Level 1 Binder: $2
Level 2 Binder: $5
Level 3 Binder: $10
Level ? Binder: $50

The game is an interactive visual novel with amazing artwork created by our two artists Bernadine Mulder and Robert Schubert. We decided to break away from the usual anime art style and hope our high quality art will be to your liking.  I will be taking care of all the coding and have already finished writing the story. We have already procured music for most of the game and hope we can add voice acting and improve the art even more. We also want to expand on the mechanics and game play to add more interactivity.  To achieve all this we need to achieve our goals as outlined.

We will endeavor to give daily to weekly updates on the progress of the game.  At this stage, Level 3 and ? Binders can look forward to an alpha release that includes most of the intro chapter of the game which we wish to also expand and improve.

Team (Hopefully we can expand):
-  Eugene Mulder (reGit): Main programmer and story writer
-  Bernadine Mulder (LieLie): Main artist
-  Robert Schubert: Assistant artist

This whole project is family undertaking. Bernadine (LieLie) and I, Eugene (reGit), are married and Robert is my father-in-law. My wife and I enjoy gaming a lot and decided that we want to start making a living from what we enjoy to do together. She inherited her artistic skill from her father, Robert, and both are amazing artists. Please, help us make our dream a reality by supporting us.

Progress report:


Version 0.1 Forest of Beginnings DOWNLOAD:
The Living Flow v0.1 Forest Of Beginnings for PC

A quick breakdown of the what the game is about:

  • The story takes place in an alternate existence where multiple universes exist, dimensions if you will.
  • Humans live in the communal realm, but a few can travel to their own "birth realm"
  • Humans posses unimaginable powers unique to each individual, but few ever access this power.
  • Those who do access this power are called Binders.
  • Three levels of binders exist: Level 1, 2 and 3 binders (Our Patreon tiers are based on these levels).
  • Demons are the real enemy seeking to destroy or control humans to gain access to their powers.
  • This game will be the first episode in a series.

The player will travel through various town maps with several locations each. The player will have to make life and death decisions and battle demons using the Binder battle system. The Binder battle system allows the player to create their own attacks, defenses and alterations using a combination of 1, 2 or 3 seed words and one key word. There are 9 seed words and 3 keywords to chooses from and the effects are minor in the beginning but as the story develops, so does the main character's powers and eventually ... well, demons will fear you. Most of these features are not available in the intro, but will become available from version 0.2.

Content:
  • Violence
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Love
  • Betrayal
  • Action
  • Superpowers
  • Nudity
  • Sexual content
  • Depression
  • Demons
  • And that is just the beginning!

That is enough of a spoiler and hopefully a teaser.  Thank you to all our Patrons and please give us your feedback!
